Best school ever. Has formed me in a very special, wonderful way. I love this place and will send my sons here.

The best thing we have ever done for our boy!!! I would pay triple the amount of tuition if I had to. Christian Brothers has figured out the formula for success. Too bad there is no girls' version.

As a former student, I can testify that the formation and education offered at Christian Brothers are second to none in the city of New Orleans. Their guidance has led me to become valedictorian of Jesuit, one of the best private schools in the nation.

I am a graduate ('71) and my son just graduated ('03). As demanding as Christian Bros. is academically, as a parent I could always see that the goal of all of the faculty was my son's success. Even more than his accademic success, thought, they were emotional and spiritual development. It is a wonderful (almost magical) small religious school that conveys to the boys that they should always live with Jesus in their hearts.

The school is set in City Park. It has a hands-on approach to providing a safe, caring, challenging and motivating atmosphere with an accelerated academic curriculum. It offers extracurricula activites from athletics and arts to community service and leadership training. It was a wonderful family experience after making the adjustment to the challenge!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
